Today's Prompt: My first doll...

I do not have any pictures with my first doll, but I have seen letters written to Santa, asking for a baby doll! The doll that really stands out was a "life sized," baby doll that was given to me by my Grandma. My two cousins, Dawn and Erica, and I carried them every where with us. I recall them being heavy to carry around with my small stature, but they were so cool. Even if I spent the night with my cousins, I brought the doll along, as she went every where with me.

The doll that was the be all and end all was my Cabbage Patch Kid. (I wanted one so badly!!!) When I finally saw her, she was perfect and she always had a place of great honor, in the middle of my bed. I spent hours playing with her, and loved her very much. She had brown hair made of yarn, and I loved dressing her in all of my old clothes. I carried her around every where, even when I shouldn't have. She was my dearest friend, and kept all of my secrets!  

Did you play with dolls? Did you have a Cabbage Patch Kid, during the era when every child just had to have one? Do you still have one or know where they are stored at your parents home?
